Pantry Announces Dean Bank as Official Bag Sponsor

Dean Bank is now the Pantry’s official shopping bag sponsor, donating hundreds of re-usable shopping bags – a supply that we count on every day. As we approach our busiest time of year, the new supply of bags will be used in a number of ways as we serve our clients. They are used for emergency food packages for new visitors who come to our doors; to package our holiday meals for Thanksgiving; and to give to new clients who register with the Pantry for ongoing assistance. Clients bring in their re-usable bags each time they visit the Pantry. Thank you, Dean Bank, for caring about our community!
